FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) today announced that Diamond Premium Care™, a non-abrasive, antimicrobial, no-contact disinfecting and deodorizing spray used on vehicle interiors and HVAC systems, is now approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to kill SARS-CoV-2 virus, associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic 2020^+.
Mitsubishi Motors is the first and only OEM deploying this service on a national scale.
“Diamond Premium Care is a rare tool in the fight against COVID-19. It offers peace of mind to the driver of any vehicle, but it’s especially valuable to those with added exposure, whether that comes from regularly sharing their vehicle with others or from the direct risk of on-the-job exposure to COVID-19,” said MMNA Vice President of Aftersales, Scott Smith. “MMNA and our dealer partners are proud to be able to offer this first-of-its-kind, EPA-approved service to everyone during these challenging times.”
Diamond Premium Care™ works by killing 99.9% of viruses+^ and bacteria* that inhabit automotive interiors and circulate through vehicle HVAC systems. It also eliminates odors at the source, without using abrasive chemicals like bleach or scented masking agents.
For interior application, the dye-free treatment is applied directly by spray to vehicle surfaces, and for HVAC application, it is applied through the outdoor air intake vent, allowing it to permeate through the HVAC system and cabin interior. For a standard-size vehicle, treatment can be completed in just 10 minutes.
The technology behind Diamond Premium Care™ was developed by Texas-based vehicle disinfecting solutions provider BioPledge®.
